Harrogate Reaction
 
All things considered, I enjoyed today more than most home games I have seen this season, with the exception of the 5-1 drubbing of Salford. It wasn't perfect but we competed and deservedly won, albeit Harrogate were a bit unlucky at times.

Thought Agustien looked a good footballer, and would probably be a contender to start on Thursday if he could get himself out of second gear. Spyrou has pace and some ability, but he reminded me of Maguire-Drew: poor application. Thought Tharme and Sargent both did OK, and pleased Oswell finally bagged himself a goal. Dibble was my MotM, too: good penalty save, and did well in dreadful conditions.

We are now potentially three wins away from returning to the FL. It certainly won't be easy, but my advice to those fans who are wailing about what might have been: don't look backwards; just look forwards.;)

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
Yeah, I enjoyed it too, despite the dreadful weather.

Sergeant looked good, neat and tidy, so nice to see some youth getting a game. 1st time I’ve seen Austien, who is great on the ball if he’s the time.

Carrington and Rutherford both had good games I thought

Oswell's goal was great, and I've been saying that once he gets one - he'll start scoring loads. He's come so close on many occasions, but now the monkey's off his back. His reaction said enough where he couldn't believe he'd finally scored - he just lay on the ground and looked over to the other players in pure disbelief it'd actually gone in! He has to start in the play-offs

Yes agree with this and both teams made a fight of it in atrocious conditions.Did anybody force themselves into contention on Thursday ?
Well I think Pearson, Lawlor (if fit ),Young and Beavon should return and having Walker back would be a bonus.

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
An enjoyable game given the circumstances and conditions. Dibble was my MOM too, though Lainton will obviously come in on Thursday. Carra, Summerfield and Jennings should start, but don't think anyone else did anything to force their way in. Oswell perhaps, given the lack of options up top. His goal might kick-start his season.

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
Thought we did ok to be fair. Wasn't too happy with the starting 11 but it worked so all's well.

Was disappointed with Agustien, tried to play the wonder ball too often when there were far easier options.

Spyrou didn't look overly interested although does clearly have some ability. From what I've been told his attitude isn't great.

Thought Sargent was decent in spells, always looking to get on the ball and looks confident in his ability.

Tharme improved 2nd half and probably needs more of a leader than Roberts along side him.

Good header from Oswell and hopefully he now pushes on and grabs a couple more.

Thought Roberts had a shocker at CB. No talking between him and Dibble

On a couple of occasions it seemed to be a case of Dibble talking, but Roberts not listening.

As well as Oswell himself, I felt that we were all surprised when it went in - we just don't expect to score a goal like that. There was definitely a delayed reaction after it hit the net. Great cross and leap! :)

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
Yes a good second half in atrocious conditions, first half was the usual dreadful boring performance but they were like 11 strangers who have hardly played together or played at all.

Another blind referee but second half we played more football than the first team and were more creative I enjoyed the second half.

I thought Sergeant looks a good prospect, Augustien has more talent than the rest of our midfield, the much hammered on here Deverdics played very well, Spyrou looks as weak as Holroyd but did make some good runs.

Tharme my MOM Dibble yes he saved a penalty but he was dodgy at times.

But all in all some good performances in awful conditions.

2nd string team and 3 points to finish the season.

Did we learn anything new and what selection decisions does it give BH?
RB, Carra seems a better choice.
Midfield probably Summerfield and Young but the 3rd choice is weak.
How can we perm a front 3 and to last 2 halves - I would start Beavon, Oswell +1.

Is Grant worth a place at all. Does Holroyd start or sub? Can Walker make the bench?

Onwards to Thursday.

Most of them are !!! considering half of them don't get game time , to come in and play well imo in those conditions was great , Doug Tharme deserves a mention He`s a good young player

Lainton Pearson Kennedy
LB - Jenniings

RB - I would usually pick Roberts over Carra, more so away from home but I think Carra's form yesterday and this month particularly playing LB & RB probably means he keeps the shirt.

CM - Summerfield (holding) Young. Toss up then between Akil for his physique or Ruthers for the ground he will cover for the cause. I wouldn't be too shocked if Walker goes straight in as he must have been fit (if not match fit) for a over a week for the Shrews to let come back.

Up top - Beavon & Oswell (if fit enough which he looked yesterday)
I think Grant shading it over Holroyd, if BH is prepared to sacrifice tge work rate of Ruthers.

Deverdics Spyrou & Augustien (apart from stupidly conceding a pen) showed touches of what they are capable of but too late to be risked. A fully fit Stockton will be useful from the bench

Yes some valuable game time for Tharme, Sargent & Thorn and better than your normal last game of The season token appearance. 2 mixed teams of regulars and squad players, which made it a competitive contest and our youngsters will take a lot from us coming from behind to win.

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
I quite enjoyed the match yesterday, despite being in half mind whether to go or not for most of the week, I was glad I went in the end.
It was a decent turn out considering it was pretty much an irrelevant game, in the bad weather and with the comic con taking place too.

I thought the youngsters did well, and we scored two well worked goals.

Oswell simply has to start, am I right in thinking he could have had three from three? if it wasn't for Holroyd trying to steal one whilst he was offside, then Holroyd doing it again to score a goal that was already on it's way in. No wonder Oswell looked uncertain that he had actually scored, he was probably looking for Holroyd wheeling away in celebration.

I think Oswell is a genuine prospect and has been unlucky as you say. I feel he forces defenders to work hard and therefore tire and to me he looks hungry. Tharme too is a great prospect. Seems big and strong and quite confident for a young fringe player. I thought Dibble was quite shaky until the penalty save. From then on he played well. I don't understand why Carra has been pushed out while Roberts is preferred. Carra, to me, is a model professional (actually he looks like a professional model but there we are). All in all a decent performance in atrocious conditions. We are as good as any of the other play-off teams despite some of the criticisms. Forty-six games don't lie.

LatePaskinHeader 28th April 2019 18.32:03

Re: Harrogate Reaction
 
I think it’s more that Jennings has been pushed out and, therefore, Carrington is playing left back. If Jennings was better defensively, it may be Roberts missing out imo.
